And sadly, whilst I do have now Bubba on his base, there was not a lot of room to really play with it, left over after setting his big feet on to stay permanently :( but once it's dry I will take better pics of him <3 Gorkanauts! Now I need a Morkanaut, just cuz.

Playboy has also made progress on his DE finally, he's gotten them all together except the arms for the guys. So soon (tm) he will have to paint them >:D

It actually is readable! I had a friend in college who was an ancient near-eastern studies major. The bulk of her dissertation work involved translating cuneiform tablets containing weird Sumerian and Akkadian religious invocations.

Also, very cool!

That is sorta what I wanted to do if I'd continued my degree as well. There are so many tablets still untranslated (or even just photo'd) - though most of them are likely simply 'X paid 40 jars of beer for the temple tax' sorta stuff lol Yay accountants and bureaucrats we owe our writing system mostly to you! lol

hehe thanks - definitely wanted a few easter eggs like that, kind of a nod to all the various geekdom ranges I'm a fan of.

I started work on Kaptin Badrukk finally! I guess I was waiting kinda to feel confident enough to work on him. I found a lot of resin flashing I hadn't removed >< but he's underway!

Aaaand I can't upload any freakin pics because Firefox disabled my FTP proggie. Basta@(#.

Sigh.

Can see them on my instagram instead I guess sigh.

And I think you can be very confident now. Great work! I especially like the vibrant greens of the face.

Ahh thanks :)

I had a friend of mine suggest bright yellow for extreme highlights which I thought was really too much but tbh it worked really well! Definitely doing more Characters like that from now on.

I did more work on my Kraken Diorama - a lot of it is waiting for plants' glue to dry atm!

The ork looks great so far! The yellow doesn't even appear to be yellow... it's always fascinating what an effect on the perception of a colour the surrounding colours can have!

I second both the Google links and the Kraken. Не работает and stunning end result, I also love the colours you gave it, brings a real vibrance to the diorama.
